"Can we, please, help this lady out. She and the baby are my regular patients to an extent where she feels comfortable telling me her personal deep matters.
"She’s unemployed and is struggling in all aspects ... She’s depending on cleaning peoples houses and [doing] their laundry [and] gets paid R150, if lucky.
"She has to then provide for herself and the baby with that amount. The baby is failing to thrive and just doesn’t look healthy."
